“go for dim sum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

We had a great lunch at Din Tai Fung. When we arrived, there was a queue for seating due to the popularity of this restaurant. To expidiate this, you're handed a piece a paper for menu selection and the menu is posted outside the restaurant. This process saves time since once seated, you hand your menu selection which they will prepare. The pastry on the dumplings are quite thin and delicate. There was no disappointment. If you like dim sum, you must eat here.

“Yum dim sum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

We walked past this place several times and loved watching them make the dumplings, so we decided to give this a try.

While there was a little wait (20 minutes), it wasn't as long as first expected. The wait also gave us the time to really exam the colourful menu out the front to make heads or tails of what we wanted to eat. We chose a variety of dishes ( my family is so fussy, it takes a few different dishes to satisfy everyone!). We were definitely not disappointed. The food was so fresh tasting and the dumplings and wontons had such thin surrounds that the fillings really shone. We added to our order twice. We added pork buns ( and needed to wait a bit of time as these are made fresh) and the mango pudding ( this has such a Devine fresh taste and was such a great end to the meal).

So worth the wait and visit.

“Mecca for Dim Sum lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

The stuffed peppers were awesome!
I went three times in three days. Had the hot and sour soup, dumplings the fried pork and many other things. I loved everything I had and would highly recommend going. There will likely be a wait but what good restaurant does not have a wait.
When you check I they give you an order form and to the right of the hostess there is a large board with pictures of all the food and a corresponding number. Get out of your comfort zone and order something you have not had. The the left is the open kitchen where you can watch them make the dumplings with exacting precision. Adding or subtracting ingredients with tweezers so portions are consistent, each dumpling has 12 folds and exactly 12. If I had one of these at home I would go twice a week!

“excellent, but limited selection of dim sum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

loved the food here. agree in part with other TA comments, however calling it multi-michelin star is really a push. Food is great, fresh and quite fast. Didnt like the limited vegetarian options, nor did i like the limited pork-free options. The food we did order was great. Would definitely go back when next in singapore
